courage to stantds up to this guy. it's pathetic. i think romney's response was the most cowardly saying this is the language i wouldn't have used. i think that's disqualified for a presidential candidate to not have the courage to speak out against language calling women sluts and prostitutes. he has grand daughters. he has a wife, and he can't take that basic step of decency. >> do you agree with that? do you think it was a critical moment? we know he can't connect with anyo anyone. we know he didn't have any convictions what so ever where he's invited to make an obvious condemnation of wrong doing. >> absolutely right. stunning spinelessness. the inabilities to stand up in the face of a well-known reality and call it for what it is. the inability to make a judgment is apparent. this is not one of those difficult things we have to parse through interpreationatii. this is some straightforward this. can you stand against it? i would not have chosen to use those words. how ridiculous is that. how about those ideas. how about those concepts. don't look at the world through the glass

romney was in place calle snowville, georgia on sunday. he said if president obama is reelected then iran will get the bomb and the world will change. i think that got under the skin of some of the officials at the white house. coupled with that the president went to apec on sunday morning and gave his speech where he talked about loose talk of war. we thought he was referring to some of the leaders on both sides of the issue, both israeli and american. it turns out that could easily be applied to some of these republican candidates. the republican candidates appeared there today. a lot of tough rhetoric from there. you heard the president say they are playing politics. if they want to launch a war, they should just say so. >> michael viqueira at the white house. first questioner of the president. thanks so much. let's bring in our panel for more analysis. good day to all of you. dave, if you listen to the president on the seriousness of the potential conflict between iran and israel and then you compare his comments with the stupidity that comes from the mouth of gingrich and santor
